Responders' opinions differ on their favorite Christmas songs

Tuesday, December 23, 2008

While Christmas Hymns such as "Silent Night," and "Away in a Manger" will be heard tonight, The Brazil Times recently asked online readers what their favorite Christmas song was.

There were 24 songs to choose from in the poll, including "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)," "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town," "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," "Winter Wonderland," "White Christmas," "Jingle Bell Rock," "I'll Be Home For Christmas," "Silver Bells," "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree," "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas," "Frosty The Snowman," "Blue Christmas," "A Holly Jolly Christmas," "Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)," "Carol Of The Bells," "Santa Baby," "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year," "Little Drummer Boy," "Sleigh Ride," "Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer," "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow," Feliz Navidad," or other.

A total of 498 respondents took part in the poll, with 96 (19.3 percent) saying other. Fifty-six respondents said "White Christmas" was their favorite, while "Little Drummer Boy" received 36 votes (7.2 percent).

"I'll Be Home For Christmas" tallied 31 votes (6.2 percent) and "Carol Of The Bells" tallied 29 votes (5.8 percent).

"The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)" also had 26 votes (5.2 percent), while "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree" had 25 votes (5 percent).

The current online poll deals with the American Flag.

A local resident turned his flag upside in protest to the bailout recently passed by Congress. The reasoning behind turning the flag upside down, the resident stated, was to show how the country was in peril.

The Times is asking readers if they agree with the decision, and may choose yes or no in the poll.

As always, readers are encouraged to comment on the poll question.
